Gianna Thomas

Gianna Thomas . . .   is a Texas girl who has been in love with Historical Romance, especially Regency Romance, for many years. But it wasn’t until 2013 that she started writing in those genres.

Gianna was aware of Pride and Prejudice after reading it many years ago and watching the 1940’s movie, as well as the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. She loved the 2005 movie, the musical score, and Matthew Macfadyen. Yes, the movie wasn’t 100% accurate, but isn’t the goal to entertain and touch the heart? This movie touched her heart and helped her to appreciate the talent of Jane Austen. Rereading Pride and Prejudice has given her greater insight into Ms. Austen’s genius in depicting different personalities and situations and the society of her day. 

After reading nearly 400 Pride and Prejudice fan-fiction variations, Gianna had plots running through her head. She finally decided they needed to be put on paper. She had an absolute ball writing about Darcy and Elizabeth and was pleased with how things developed. Her goal will always be to entertain and touch hearts. Hopefully, with her first novel, Pride and Prejudice: Darcy Chooses, she achieved that goal and touched your heart also.

Gianna has also looked beyond Pride and Prejudice, her first foray into Regency Romance with The Four Lords’ Saga Series. She is finding that she loves all the lords, their ladies, and their families, and writing about them is one of the most fun-filled adventures she’s ever been on. There’s nothing better than to read and write about handsome lords who become reformed bad boys!

Gianna Thomas is a ghostwriter of poetry and e-books who became a widow after twenty-two years with her very own Mr. Darcy, who was her second husband. She lives a quiet life in a small Texas town with her cats and loves to read Regency romance and the many variations done by other lovers of Pride and Prejudice.

Jane Austen’s hero is less than heroic at the beginning of this sweet Regency romance. Will he mend his ways in time to win his lady love? Or will Darcy lose her because of the charm that he so sorely lacks?

The Women of Longbourn: A Pride and Prejudice Variation (Darcy and Elizabeth Series Book 1)
